Pope is not the crook that Rex Gore was. However Pope will let these crooks that operate behind the scenes and peep from under rocks; off lightly. I am not talking about common criminals but the other thugs, the likes of Mitchell Tyler and the judges that have protected him whilst he performs his corrupt duties of gathering cash for elections and lobbying for votes.
Davis is not from here and he will come in with a clean slate. Thugs beware if he gets elected. I am pretty sure that you will not buy or scare him off.

Pope has some foul mouthed people that seek to destroy anyone that does not vote for him. It is typical Columbus County. Since the days of Wilton Hunt, if you don't support me, I will destroy you has continued. These same people take down and destroy Jon David's signs. In Bladen, criminals are running around and soliciting votes for Pope. The trial lawyers that support the machine wish to keep one of their own in management. Back room dealings will continue under Pope. Am I saying Pope is a crook? No I am not. Pope, however will look the other way. Therefore electing Pope isn't much different than keeping Rex Gore in office. Jon David is not with "the team." He is from out of the area and will not allow all of these lawyers to operate with a free hand. Cases will be handled in front of a judge and in open court.
Columbus County is one of the most corrupt counties in this state.
Now lets talk about Sherry Prince Tyler. Has she left Mitchell?

Wow. You have a DA that hails from Brunswick Co? Oh, my, no wonder you're flooded with corruption in Columbus County. Where exactly is Columbus County? It's on the coast.
It's even worse up in the mountains. In the Polk County, NC area, there are politicians who are literally putting people's lives at risk by refusing to fix things in buildings they rent out.
One just got re-elected to the role of Commissioner. This area is flooded with crooks, thieves and low lifes too. I'm sad to see the corrupt democrats will keep control in office up in that area.
